Lately I’ve been sensing many people are feeling alone. Perhaps you feel like you have things to do and take care of in life and are being overwhelmed by the pressures of the world. Perhaps you’ve had heartache and are finding it difficult to feel connected with others. Perhaps you’re feeling alone, and you don’t know why.
One of my favorite verses is in Hebrews 13:5 which says “…be content for He has said He will never leave you nor forsake you.” This has been a favorite verse of mine for as long as I can remember and has guided me through many difficult times. Learning that verse is actually one of my earliest memories when my dad helped me memorize scriptures for a children’s Bible class I was in growing up.
Jesus Christ has set us free and we are now seated with Him in heaven. Through difficult times, it may be helpful to be reminded of where we really are, right now – seated with Christ. We have been commissioned as disciples of Jesus to share the love of God with the world, yet we are not of this world. We are with Jesus. We are never alone.
